One thing that I have always said that we are so lucky for here in Western PA is that there is never a shortage of things to do. While there are many arts and cultural things for adults, there are also many things for kids to do as well.
This summer I am partnering with Kidsburgh to find some of the area’s best attractions and activities for kids and families. If you aren’t familiar with the Kidsburgh website, it’s the go-to online resource focusing on the people and ideas that make Pittsburgh a better place to raise kids.
Over the summer, it seems as if we are on the go every weekend, whether it be going to the amusement park, the pool, hiking, or visiting any one of the area’s museums. Even more fun than visiting all of our favorite spots is discovering new favorite spots. The perfect way to do this is with the Kidsburgh Summer Guides.
Kidsburgh Summer Guides Make Fun Easy
There are a variety of guides on the Kidsburgh website including a Spring Events Guide, Indoor Thrill Rides Guide, and my favorite, the Hiking Trails Guide. One of the locations in the Hiking Guide is McConnells Mills which was one of my family’s favorites from last year. It’s a great place not only for hiking and enjoying nature, but the mill also offers a great history lesson for the kids.
There are several other guides in the works including ones for the Three Rivers Arts Festival, Summer Movie Guide, and a Water Fun Guide. These guides are a great way to find out about activities near you that you otherwise might not even know existed. I’m really looking forward to when they publish the Summer Events Guide. There are always so many things going on in and around the city that it’s convenient to have everything in one place for easy reference.
In addition to guides and recommendations on great places to visit, Kidsburgh also has a variety of activities designed to keep kids occupied, especially during the summer months. This includes mazes, coloring pages, and even Maker Monday videos which show kids how to make things and be creative.
Keep the Family Busy This Summer With Kidsburgh
In an age where kids are often content to stay in front of their screens, having a resource such as Kidsburgh is invaluable. As a parent, Kidsburgh provides me with valuable resources, and as a family Kidsburgh has given us so many ideas for new adventures.
